Topic: Off-topic / how many of your pets died

We had about 30 tadpoles in a small pond like thing in my back garden when i was young. One or possibly two managed to survive long enough to become frogs and run off. The rest died. The one frog that i know that ran off, we named Ziggy. Maybe that is why he ran away.

Also on a sadder note we had a cat called midnight which was unfortunately hit by a car. I think that was 9 or possibly 10 years ago now.

Also, although the dog wasn’t ours, i had grandparents who lived very near with a Border Collie called Blaze who also died. He died a when i was very young, about 4 or 5.

Topic: Off-topic / What would you honestly do if you saw a brutal murder?

So are you seeing the murder take place or has it just taken place and you see the aftermath. If you can interrupt the murderer before he murders, i think that would probably be the best thing to do. Why don’t you take a photo of him with the flash still on. That should distract him.

Sorry, I know you didn’t say all of that but i haven’t quite figured out how to do the quote post properly

In a raid, or straight up fight pirates would win, cannons and guns in big amounts.

They would carry several single shot pistols but they would not have many cannons as pirates relied more on the speed of their ships. Cannons are heavy and would slow down the ship. They would also require several crew members to operate them. But yes in a large scale engagement the pirates would win. I was thinking more along the lines of 6v6

Flintlock pistols were useless. It wouldn’t be that advantageous to take one from a pirate.

Topic: Off-topic / Pirates vs Ninjas

If you are talking about modern day pirates and ninjas they would both have the same level of technology available to them. Being a ninja does not confine you to using one weapon.

Really? What about other religions and the teachings of their prophets and gods. Surely they would argue that to get into heaven you must follow what their god says. Furthermore, are you saying you cannot get into heaven if you do not believe in what you believe in?

So basically pirates from Somalia. And if that’s so do you know about any ninjas active today. No. They’re that good.

This thread is Pirates vs Ninjas and i assumed we were talking about pirates from the olden days like from pirates of the Caribbean.

Topic: Off-topic / Pirates vs Ninjas

Bow and arrow has a considerably higher rate of fire than a musket. I’m also pretty certain a crossbow has a higher rate of fire as well, you know, unless the ninja in question drops all the crossbow bolts over and over again.

Topic: Off-topic / Pirates vs Ninjas

I would like to point out that the bow and arrow was only recently surpassed by the gun and that ninjas would most likely have access to and be well trained with a bow and arrow. Failing that they would almost certainly have a crossbow to use at range. There is also a misconception that ninjas dress in all black. The object of their game was stealth so it would much more suitable for them to be dressed as a peasant or something. This would allow them to covertly gain entry onto the pirate ships and they would be able to assassinate the pirates in their sleep.

Topic: Serious Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election

To solve this situation you either have to quote the original thread in which MyTie supposedly gave a link to or merely mentioned ‘The Onion’ or you all have to just forget about it. I am all for the moving on and forgetting about it so it does not cloud your judgement of the other. It does not matter if someone cited an unreliable source in a different thread or conversation if we are currently concerning ourselves with this conversation.

P.S. MyTie you’re right i really should but citing specific economic policies when comparing the Republicans with the Bolsheviks but to be frankly honest i usually stick to Off Topic so can’t really be bothered to. Also i acknowledge that the Republicans and Bolsheviks aren’t really much alike, just that from my viewpoint i don’t think the economic policies of either were that great.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Does suicide mean you are going to hell??

Hell does not exist and people should have the option of suicide if they want. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to live/exist just for the purpose of living/existing. If suicide does affect others then those others also have the option of suicide if they want, only suicide isn’t for everyone just as life isn’t for everyone.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Should Learning Another Language At School Be Compulsory

I really think they should start teaching you a second language from a much younger age. When i was at school half of the year had to take German and half had to take French. I think if it is mandatory to take these subjects they should be taught from an earlier age to give you a base model to work with in secondary school and/or you should be allowed to choose your preferred language to learn. I had to learn German and i wasn’t very good at it. I would very much have liked to learn French as that seemed more relevant to me.

Topic: Serious Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election

I am not for spending more than the country has. I would not vote for Obama myself because the Democrats are a right wing party. Furthermore socialism has not been a disaster, it is widespread throughout Europe and the US itself adopts several socialist principles, only it refuses to acknowledge these things as socialist in their war against left wing politics. However, you may be able to argue that communism has been a failure. Then again true communism has never actually been achieved so you must not mistake the Russian Stalinism model for communism.

Topic: Serious Discussion / U.S. Presidential Election

I can’t help but feeling that right wing United states of Americans (Democrats and Republicans (especially republicans)) have some major misconceptions about communism, socialism and class. Watching on the news people booing the word socialism at a republican speech shows just how warped peoples way of thinking in the USA is. Socialism and communism in themselves are not bad. It seems as though the far right party of the Republicans are oppressive in holding back civil liberties and rights. It does not seem like the party cares about the people or equality in the country. You can hear the Republicans talking about the middle class in their speeches sometimes. What about the lower class? The middle class has it a lot better than the lower class, they’re the middle class!

But looking at what Jhco said about how ‘All of these people who think Obama is going to keep his promises are going to be really surprised’. The only reason Obama hasn’t been able to keep his promises is because the Republicans in the not so representative house of representatives keep stonewalling him. USA you really are a nation divided.

Topic: Off-topic / what would happen if you were the president of the united states

Split the USA into two separate nation-states, the progressive and Republican states, and then watch as left wing politics slowly rises in the progressive states, which then becomes closer to being a fair, equal and democratic society.
